This 'roast' actually uses moist heat to tenderize the meat as it bakes in aluminum foil. Onion soup mix browns the exterior while adding extra savory flavor.
5 pounds boneless bottom round or eye of round roast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (1.4-ounce) package dry onion soup mix
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
- Rub roast evenly with oil. Coat with soup mix and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Place in a shallow roasting pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until desired doneness is reached. For a medium roast, look for an internal temperature of 140°F (60°C). Remove roast from oven and loosen foil. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
Makes 12 servings.
